if the m imea. but john kerry who visited the capitol of kiev and president obama insisted what vladimir putin says does not match what's happening on the ground. >> i don't think that's fooling anybody. i think everybody recognizes that although russia has legitimate interests in what happens in a neighboring state, that does not give it the right to use force as a means of exerting influence inside of that state. >> we condemn the russian federation's act of aggression. it is clear that russia has been working hard to create a pretext for being able to invade further. russia has talked about russian-speaking minority citizens who are under siege. they're not. and in fact this government has acted remarkably responsibly by urging total calm. >> now, today mr. putin would not acknowledge to reporters that russian troops were even in crimea, but he did say his intentions are not a takeover of crimea. >> we are not going to go to wor with ukraine, but you crepe has the army. i want you to understand clearly. if we do this, it will only be to protect local people. >> now, russia plans to me
precarious. secretary kerry said it bluntly this is a brazen act of aggression of russia. the u.s. just doesn't know whether putin is moving toward a confrontation across ukraine that would challenge the new government in kiev or whether this is really going to be limited more to the areas most strategic to russia in the crimea where the russian fleet is based. as one person said it to me last night, we are really playing this by ear. secretary kerry had strong words about the diplomatic and economic consequences that russia will pay for this action but it's obvious in every statement that's made that the u.s. does not seek, does not want a military challenge to this action. i was told that not a ship is moving in the mediterranean, not have been put on maneuvers that might be seen as provocative. for much the response is diplomatic and perhaps sanctions and economic. >> david, now we understand that americans now understand seemingly that putin does not care what we think, does not care about the language that secretary kerry used yesterday on american television, is it now sort of a counund
